Windows SteadyState was discontinued in 2010 and has been unavailable for Windows 7 and now Windows 8. Many Microsoft SteadyState users at schools, libraries and hotels have been searching for a free or open source alternative. Finally, Windows SteadyState users can rest assured, because now there's a free Windows Steady State replacement that's fully Windows 7 and Windows 8 compatible. Reboot Restore Rx is Free and does exactly what Microsoft Steadystate was intended to do.
Reboot Restore Rx can update the baseline instantly with a single click. The baseline can easily be ratcheted forward to incorporate the latest Windows and program updates. So now, public PC users are free to hack the registry, download viruses, change the background -- it really doesn't matter what they do in Windows -- and the computer will return to the baseline once it's restarted.
